The Pittsburgh Pirates announced on Monday morning that right-handed pitcher Ivan Nova has been placed on the 10-day disabled list. They have recalled right-handed pitcher Nick Kingham to take his place on the 25-man roster.
Nova was scheduled to start tomorrow, but he has been dealing with a right ring finger strain. The move was made retroactive to May 25th and he should miss just this one start. Kingham will get the start on Tuesday, making his fourth start this season for the Pirates. He was pulled after one inning in his start over the weekend with Indianapolis.
